Hello Darling is the indie folk outfit led by Grace Russell and Patrick Armould. The pair met while attending Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee as songwriting majors. Not long after meeting they began writing songs together as a creative outlet outside of their personal endeavours.
Armould comes from an Americana background. After spending time as the front man for the indie folk band Halleway in Denver, Colorado he quickly began to learn the ropes of what it was like to be a touring musician as a teenager. The band toured with acts like Houndmouth, Joe Pug, and The Ballroom Thieves. When the band disbanded in 2019, Armould channeled his energy to a solo project he named American Field Day. While touring with American Field Day, he has made records with the likes of producers such as Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses) and Mike Marsh (The Avett Brothers). He has shared the stage with bands such as: Illiterate Light, Joe Pug, and Strand of Oaks. Not long after his pursuit started with American Field Day, he moved to Nashville to study at Lipscomb and further his career. It was there he met Grace Russell.

Grace Russell was born and raised in one of the most profound music cities in the world, New Orleans. Driven by the energy of her hometown, she gravitated towards music from a young age. As she excelled in writing music, she began to make a name for herself as an up and coming songwriter within the New Orleans music scene. At age 17, Russell left her small town behind and dove into the Music City. Working as a songwriter under many different mentorships, she honed her craft to form a sound that is uniquely and undeniably Grace Russell. Russell toured throughout the southeast as a solo artist under her own name, growing her audience wherever she went.  In the summer of 2020, her songs began to bend closer to being labeled as “folk rock songs” as she discovered softer melodies that hovered beside an acoustic guitar. This came just in time for the fall when she met Patrick Armould when the duo began writing songs for what eventually became Hello Darling.

Hello Darling prides itself on its heartfelt lyrics and unmistakable live performances. When they sit down to write songs, the goal is to create music that was just as effective to the listener as it is to the band personally. The music walks the stylistic lines of indie folk and Americana, driving comparison to The Head and the Heart and The Avett Brothers. Their debut self titled EP is out now on all platforms.
